Posted: June 16, 2015 - 02:01 / ESA Filings

The Energy Storage Association submitted written testimony to the United State Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources regarding numerous bills related to energy efficiency, infrastructure, and supply that together can create a vision for and guide our nation’s overarching energy policy in the coming years.

ESA is in agreement that the Committee should continue to develop bipartisan legislation that moves our electric grid into the future, spurring continued innovation to reduce cost, increase reliability and resilience, and allow for consumer engagement and choice. Including energy storage as part of that smarter grid will provide the appropriate tools for local, state and regional entities to take full advantage of technologies and applications and make that 21st century grid a reality.
